Knitting Workshops

PS:One will be hosting a series of free Knitting Workshops beginning on Monday, December 6th at 7PM and continuing every other Monday.

In addition to learning to knit, you will get demos of dyeing and prepping fiber, spinning yarn, knitting machines, etc.

You can join these workshops at any time as a beginner, but if you miss the first session, please try to come in a little early so that we can spend one-on-one time with you to get you started.

Knitters with experience are more than welcome to join the group, sit in for workshops, and help beginners with their dropped stitches!

Every knitter I know has started by knitting a scarf, so that is what I will be teaching you all to do! The first session will be dedicated to showing you how to cast on and knit your first few rows of the scarf.

Materials: While the workshops are free, you still need to bring some yarn and needles. Find a craft store and look for yarn that you like in “worsted weight,” “chunky,” or “bulky” sizes. To do this, look on the side of the yarn ball at the chart showing gauges. You want something that ranges from 20 stitches per 4 inches to 14 stitches per 4 inches. The gauge will list a needle size next to it, so pick up a pair of straight needles in the size it lists. Most craft stores have knitters on staff, so don’t be afraid to ask for help in picking materials.

I will have a few sets of materials available for drop-ins, but you might not like the colors or types of yarn I give you, so please be sure to pick up your own!

If these workshops go well, we will do a group project for the space after we finish making our scarves.

See you all on Monday!
